Canestrelli Delicious Italian Cookies

Canestrelli Delicious Italian Cookies

Canestrelli are a wonderfully delicious italian cookie, an almost shortbread type cookie but with a crunch, fast and easy.  The perfect afternoon tea cookie.

I have returned to Italy and of course I am missing all my family and friends, especially my eldest Daughter that unfortunately I didn’t see nearly enough.

She is off on adventures of her own and is now living in Vancouver (this was 2 years ago and now she is back in Toronto!) for the time being.  So we only had a few days together.
